Join WYRD WAR as we celebrate co-founder Dennis Dread’s birthday on June 1 with a rare 35mm screening of Abel Ferrara's gritty black comedy THE DRILLER KILLER (1979)! A frustrated artist becomes unhinged while struggling to pay his bills, work on his paintings, and hold things together for his strung-out roommates. When an annoying New Wave band called The Roosters moves in next door, he finally snaps! What happens next landed this sleazy slice of guerrilla New York City filmmaking on the UK's infamous "video nasties" list along with 39 other films that were successfully prosecuted for violence under the Obscene Publications Act. You will laugh, cry, and/or scream in terror. Just don’t say you haven’t been warned. The Driller Killer is coming.
